  1. What game is this? Is this Wildlands? Looks cool.
  2. Does that make it a 320-bit card again vs the 12GB 3080 Ti being a 384-bit? Wonder if any tradeoffs if they brought as a gaming card.
  3. They are doing a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2? Interesting... LOL at Starfield being an Xbox exclusive. Really makes you wonder what's going to happen with Elder Scrolls 6 after it.
  4. That was a great read, thank you. Any shots of the PCB length vs the cooler length? Seems the cooler has been a bad measure of PCB lengths this gen with all the passthrough designs.
  5. Loving this. Can't wait to see more.
  6. My thought as well. Worried now what a new generation say several years from now when things are back to normal might look like price wise if people are willing to spend anything now. Nvidia definitely kicking themselves for $699 price for a 3080.
  7. Of minimal performance increase over the 3070 for much more money. As egregious as the 3080Tie? No. But still of bad value.
  8. I finally feel comfortable migrating from my 8.1 box to 10 when I get the new build rig. I did not feel comfortable participating in the free upgrade when it first came out as I had horrible driver issues with my laptop after upgrading it to 10.
  9. Love the "tie" jokes. Anyway I just don't get this card. Titans at least somewhat made sense as a halo product with some maybe flimsy but at least driver level differentiations from mainline GeForce products that made it a halo product in the GeForce lineup, but still prosumer. The 3090 is not a Titan and it merely having 24GB is not what defines it as a Titan or not. In reality there is what...maybe 10% difference between the 3080 and the 3090? Them now slotting something inside that 10% slot and pricing it the way they are is odd to me. Frankly neither the 3080Ti or the 3090 should exist as halo products. Going back to the 780Ti, 980Ti, 1080Ti, and even the 2080Ti, they offered sizable performance increases a whole tier above the base xx80 part. So not only is the 3080Ti the most expensive xx80Ti part ever, it offers the least performance over a base xx80 part ever, in single digits. And you damn well know they will be making more 3090's and 3080Ti's than 3080's with their GA-102 dies now. This whole gen makes no sense in general. Now gamers getting screwed by crypto miners, shortages, etc. now have Nvidia to thank for further screwing.
  10. I realize thread title is from article, but its literally a 3090 with half the VRAM for buku bucks. If this is for gamers, its Nvidia taking the piss out of the current market and their "mistake" business wise, of launching Ampere at the price points they did. Strictly speaking MSRPs, does a $1200 xx80 Ti class card sound familiar? ?
  11. I'm not talking MSRPs or FE's strictly speaking here. Have heard of cheaper than 3080Ti 3090's. Heard of a guy getting a FTW3 3090 for $100 cheaper than a 3080Ti Strix.
  12. Ok, yeah was going to ask why one would be against repair.
